Aquatica Submarines in collaboration with the Roatan Institute of Deep Sea Exploration (RIDE), Fabien Cousteau and Richard Branson took multiple submersibles and dove to the bottom of the 407ft/124m site.
After this initial expedition, 30 plus more dives took place in order to record data and footage for scientific research.
